Study Skills Tutoring


New Content

To learn new information and demonstrate knowledge, strong reading and writing skills are crucial. Just as important is your student's ability to learn from textbooks and lecture, to take effective notes, to prepare for tests efficiently, and to follow directions.


Time and Materials

Planning ahead and setting priorities around deadlines such as projects and tests are essential for school success. Students also need to be organized and manage their time and materials.

About SLC Study Skills Tutoring

Many students who WANT to learn still have difficulty in school, often because they do not know HOW to learn. Study skills are skills essential for learning; and yet most school curriculum do not provide a course on study and organizational strategies. 

We first determine the student's specific needs by listening to the parents and assessing skills. Once the program is designed, our certified, experienced teachers can teach your child how to listen, read textbooks effectively, take effective notes by pulling out important information, and how to study for tests. Just as important, we teach students time management skills - what assignments to work on first, keeping a daily/weekly log of time commitments, planning ahead for projects and tests, and breaking down longer assignments into smaller chunks. We also help your child create a dedicated study space without distractions, manage materials, and become and stay organized.  Throughout our study skills program, we encourage students to bring in their school materials - including agenda, notebooks, and textbooks - to start applying proper study habits to their immediate classes and assignments.

This program is especially valuable for the middle school and the high school student trying to manage an increasing workload. The study skills program can be combined with homework help and support when needed.

What Parents Are Saying...

How do you change from your son being an underachiever, disorganized, poor time manager, and having a weakened self concept; to a focused hard worker who is a capable learner willing to explore the world of knowledge, building the poise and confidence necessary to successfully demonstrate academic proficiency? Don’t ask me! Ask Lana Marshak! More importantly invest in your child and let her show you. If in doubt call me!
